    Color me absolutely SHOCKED that this person whose best movies are so close to being bad movie has since made universally panned movies.

    Sex, Lies, and Videotape

    very apt title.

    The extended cut is pretty amazing. I expected this to abstract the film more, but instead it provides clarity. And that really works.

    I don’t find this best introduction to the film, but it might be the better version.

    Lars von Trier in 2011: "I'm a Nazi."
    Lars von Trier fans: "It was a joke in poor taste."

    Lars von Trier in 2018: "No really, I'm a Nazi."

    Never thought I’d be the guy who thinks everything should be a mini-series, but here we are.

    Hard not to desire a bit more from the end of this — not the very, very end, which is excellent, albeit, expected — but this is such a fucking trip. Nic Cage porn, through and through. I didn’t know I needed that?

    Truly, truly evil filmmaking.

    Really, really liked this. There’s certainly more to be desired in some parts, but this is a film that’s so committed to what it is, so it’s hard to fault it. Violent, sexy and so, so queer. Excellent.
